  • Air Fryer
  • Tongs


  • 1 pound bacon 4-10 slices


  • If you prefer to place your bacon in the bottom of the basket, slice them in half and lay them in a single layer in the bottom of the basket. 
  • Set your air fryer to 400 degrees (390 for some) and cook for 8 minutes.
  • Use tongs to remove from the air fryer and continue in the same manner with the next batch of bacon.
  •  If preferred, you can skip slicing the bacon and hang it over the edge of the basket. Follow all other steps as normal. You can fit 10 slices in the air fryer at one time using this method
